Constitution Day 2020: Passing of the Gavel
Join us as we pass the gavel from EPCBA President Jeff Weeks to President-Elect Jennifer Knies! EPCBA 2020-2021 Board Election results will be announced.
Special Keynote Speaker from APM Reports’ podcast, In the Dark
Curtis Flowers has been tried six times for the same crime. For more than 20 years, Flowers has maintained his innocence. He's won appeal after appeal, but every time, the prosecutor just tries the case again. What does the evidence reveal? And why does the justice system ignore the prosecutor's record and keep Flowers on death row? Join us for the Constitution Day Passing of the Gavel to hear from APM’s Legal Reporter Parker Yesko who helped uncover evidence that lead to the U.S. Supreme Court reversing Mr. Flowers’ conviction.
